on your main page..
put the two side by side... maybe people would see this

but first you should probably talk to them about it, because they might not have deliberately done it.. well, unless it's like more than 3... than I guess there's no talking required!!

On another site, some girl took my work and put songs over it... then put a copyright on it... I confronted her a long with a few other people and she deleted her account.

Report them. Also, you may try banning them from your page. I'm not sure how that works exactly, if it applies when they're not logged in or not.
Nonetheless, it's frustrating, I know. Hang in there! :hug:

Vorbeste cu ei/ele, daca au facut-o ca exercitiu atunci ar trebuie ca macar sa mentioneze lucrarea ta originala (si eventual sa ceara pareri comparate, nu de alta dar daca e exercitiu si vor sa invete atunci acest lucru le-ar fi de un real folos. Eventul ai putea sa le oferi indicatii care sa-si creeze propriile lucrari originale).

Un jurnal cu copii adunate si mentiunile de rigoare ar fi urmatoarea optiuni, macar fanii tai vor sti sa faca diferenta. Ai putea sa incerci sa-ti postezi lucrarile cu licente Creative Commons mai restrictive atasate, care sa interzica copierea si atunci daca respectivii insista si se leaga de lucrari protejate, ar putea fi cel putin dati afara de pe dA.

Optiuni sunt mai multe si stiu ca e chiar dureros cand lumea reproduce lucrari ale tale care in mod sigur au in primul rand o valoare emotionala. Dar fanii sunt alaturi de tine si in final, raul facut se intoarce impotriva faptasului.

am incercat sa vorbesc cu ea... i-am trimis un note si i-am explicat frumos ca asemanarea e prea batatoare la ochi... nu-s absurda in halul ala incat sa nu inteleg ca i-a placut mult si a vrut sa faca ceva asemanator... dar putea pune in link in notes "inspired by ... ". nici n-a avut obrazul sa-mi raspunda la note. cand eu incercam sa-i fac un bine si sa rezolvam totul omeneste fara scandal :/ mai mult ca "raspuns" sa zic asa a scos comments de la lucrarile respective... am pus si in jurnal lucrarile mele si ale ei ca o comparatie si s-au gasit unii sa-mi sara in cap :/ asa ca l-am sters ca aveam si-asa destule probleme cu respectiva ca sa-mi fac si cu altii... report a primit de la multi... cred ca ultimul lucru care imi ramane e sa ma adresez help desk-ului
mersi pt. sfaturi oricum :hug:

Unfortunately, this apparently has been happening a lot, and it's easily done and apparently easy to get away with. Since it's not technically the same work, you probably won't be able to find any help getting it removed. Fortunately, people here on dA are smart and will be able to tell the works this person is producing are blatantly copied from yours. I would hope they wouldn't give this person the attention by favoriting the copied pieces and adding to the person's page view count.

I'm sorry you're going through this. You're an amazing person, and I hate to see you hurt in this way. Try to take some comfort in knowing there are a lot of people here who support you and respect your art.

You should note them and ask them to stop, and tell them exactly how you feel about them copying you, and then if that fails report them!

I had this happen to me with one of my pieces and I sought out advice from one of the gallery admins here and she pretty much told me that there really isn't much you can do about it because it is not technically stealing your work. She also told me that it is best in these cases not to cause a lot of drama and point out the person in your journal or anything public like that because YOU could end up getting in trouble with dA. What she told me I SHOULD do is to leave a very pleasant comment on the person's artwork telling them how flattered I was that they liked my work such and such so much that they were inspired to try it them self. I was too shy to do that, but I did write it to them in a note. I never received a reply back, but the person who did that to me never did it again. And I feel alot better knowing that I handled it maturely. Especially since the few people who noticed the copied work knew that I had done mine first and that the other person even faved my work before they posted theirs.

yes but what to do if she not only copied me but others? if you look in her gallery you will surely recognise art from more famous artists reworked :S practically besides the photographs none of her manips is 100% her work and idea

Imitation is not flattery when the imitator posts the work as their own. I've modeled someone else's work on occasion to see if I can - but that's just for my own benefit and not for public display. If it is an homage to someone then the artist should say so and give proper credit to the one who inspired them.

I'd contact them and ask them to remove the work. If that doesn't work, then report them.

ok...chestia asta mi se pare o tampenie. nu vad nici o logica in a copia lucrarile cuiva, mai ales sa folosesti in ele acelasi stock! e aiurea...O.o
ar trebui sa vb cu persoana respectiva si sa-i spui ce parere ai si sa vezi si ce are el/ea de spus.
sper sa se rezolve totul :hug:
take care :heart:

...Wow persons that do this have no thoughts of their own and must copy others style...perhaps they do it to jump on the band wagon and want to have glory of the page views and favorites...

If it the same as yours in all detail found in your pic...report them.

On the otherhand if you have study art history many of the great artist made copies of the masters...so one must ask is this a study to improve their skills or perhaps its really about ripping. Look at the Dada artist of the past they took something from others and made something new....

I would ponder about the pros and cons before I would do any action towards them...:)

she seems pretty skilled... I told her politely to take those copied works off and try to use her imagination and make something that her art will be more appreciated if it was an original one :/
it would have been fine by me if she had posted "this was inspired by -link to work- by FrozenStarRo" :no:
